Ohio Deputy Convicted of Rape and Kidnapping

A Butler County, Ohio sheriff’s deputy was convicted Thursday of kidnapping and raping a 19-year-old woman. A judge ruled that Kirk Kash, 38, grabbed the woman’s neck and forced her to perform oral sex on him after he discovered her having consensual sex with an 18-year-old man outside a Forest Fair Mall nightclub. Kash, who was moonlighting as a mall security guard, threatened to ticket the woman, who later said she feared his gun if she did not comply. Investigators found Kash’s semen and the victim’s DNA on his shirttail, providing solid evidence that the oral assault took place. Kash, who resigned from the sheriff’s office shortly after the accusation surfaced, faces 6-20 years in prison and will be sentenced on September 10th.
